Profile Identification
Profile Identification For Citizens Profile Identification For Citizens

Profile authentication is the process of connecting your CY Login profile with your identity. By using your authenticated profile you can act as a real person during your transactions with the connected government electronic services.

Profile authentication for natural persons can be done in the following two ways:

1. Through electronic banking (eBanking). During this process the user is transferred to eBanking where she/he authorizes the bank to release to CY Login certain personal data (ID no, Tel.no, email, etc). In this way, it is possible for the state to provide personal electronic services to you. It is pointed out that during this procedure no financial data is transferred. You will be able to review the data and accept their transfer before the process is complete.

If you wish to authenticate your CY Login profile through eBanking press here.
